So are the front-rowers gonna be screaming "PLAY HARD SCHOOL !!! HARD SCHOOL !!!!!!" at Axl when it gets quiet during this US tour? hehe 

If they do, I bet you he will respond with one of the following:

”Hardschool? What’s that? Do you mean Jackie Chan?”

or

”No, you downloading motherfucker! We’re gonna punish you by playing The Seeker five times in a row instead!”

He cues it up, then just stares Slash dead in the eyes as he sings every last word.

Followed by, "you're still in my ass! Fuckhead, go home!"

If this song is in any way indicative of the material Axl has in reserve, then Duff and Slash will have to work miracles. It's starting to become clearer and clearer that Axl really didn't have much left in the tank creatively post-'93 - and by not communicating with either the press or fans, the mystery and legend of Chinese Democracy grew far bigger than what it really was - most likely, the CD project is a collection of mediocre half-finished demos with millions of dollars worth of production tacked on to cover up their lack of substance. I'd venture a guess that the best stuff Nu Guns had was already released in '08. 

Bob Ezrin was right.

-FUCK ATLAS! MY SILKWORMS MIXES ARE AT STAKE!

How do you figure? I still strongly believe Axl saved "Big Guns" for a follow up & third release ...

Yep. Took a sledgehammer to Axl's already fragile confidence.

"Two good songs." Bullshit.

Ezrin was probably told by UMG/Iovine to say something like that. They were hoping that Slash got a call back to rejoin

I seriously think the notion of Axl having any "big guns" should be put to rest. Yes - as a fan, I do think the man is sitting on a lot of unfinished material in various stages. Some of it is probably pretty darn good, or at the very least interesting. I don't think he is in possession of anything that will bring world peace, or save the world in any way. 

Guns N' Roses are a nostalgia act. Like Metallica, like Bon Jovi, like Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, etc, etc, etc, etc... they can release a mediocre, or pretty solid rock record, that few people will genuinely care about, but as long as they're touring with a semi-respectable representation of their classic lineup under that banner, there is a lot of money to be made touring, and touring alone.

I hope to one day hear a treasure trove of unreleased material, but I'm not expecting much aside from "heh, that's pretty good," or "those lyrics are pretty solid." 

The myth of Axl Rose having any groundbreaking material should have ended with Chinese Democracy. He released a good album. No more, no less.

What I think of "Big Guns" aren't world-changing like you described, simply epic songs on the level of TWAT, Prostitute ... I truly don't believe the best of those 10 years are all on the '08 release ...

Possibly; there's a certain mythology behind that era of songs named Atlas Shrugged, The General - which are probably the two "grails," that people have been after for a while. I have no doubt they are good, possibly great songs. I just don't lose sleep over it anymore lol.

There was a time (no pun intended, lol) where this stuff used to get my geeked. Those days are over.

I'm a lot younger than most of the members here and have only been following the band for so long so I still lose sleep over it !! Lol

Years ago it was fun and nerve wracking all at the same time. The era between 99-06 was a lot of fun in a lot of ways. I was also 17-24 back then. Right now, I'm gonna be 37 in a month. Pretty much the same age Axl came out of hiding. Now I am learning why he was such a bitter, cantankerous old fuck back then.

 

Yeah, by then he was nothing like the sunny, unreserved, easy to work with, people-lovin' kinda guy he was known to be in the late eighties and early nineties.

Back in the day it (the 16-sec leak) was called "No Love Remains" on some torrent with a few different CD leaks so that's why I'll always think of it as.

No Love Remains would fit best to the lyrics, definitely more than Jackie Chan (wtf?), Checkmate, or Hard School, although HS isn't too bad. 

Edit: The song's grown on me, and I agree that it absolutely could have replaced certain tunes on ChD.

Fucking awesome. I stand by my claim - had this been released in 2000 it'd been HUGE. 

Agreed.  Who ever decided not to release the supposedly 99/2000 '2000 intentions' album, were idiots and didn't know what they were doing............Hardschool is hot and would be been perfect alongside OMG and the other '99' demos we have.

Bob Ezrin was right.

I think evaluating the whole possible unreleased catalogue just on the basis of one old demo and a cell phone snippet could hardly be conclusive or even fair. If Axl said in 08 there could be another record in a year or so, I have no reason not to believe it, and I doubt he would have released just some scrap drawer stuff left from ChD sessions. There must be at least one other record of goodies, and probably more.

This song, for example, is the kicker the album was missing. With some work done, it could have easily replaced one of several songs I can think of.

It seems like Axl had a good album ready to go just 2 or 3 years after he seriously started working on it. (1997)

Maybe it was a combination of his own insecurities and just his instinct to improve it like he wanted to do with UYI at the time and the record company's greed (maybe they actually didn't think it was good enough and/or wanted a hit single to sell more copies) or they were just spinning their wheels cause they wanted a reunion to take place.

Then you have people like Ezrin and RTB that fucked shit up even more probably. And wasn't it Jimmy Iovine that told Axl to release Oh My God as a soundtrack? the reception of it didn't help I imagine but it showed Axl was excited about the tune and wanted to release it.

But if they said to him in 1999: "sounds fuckin' great, let's mix it and release it asap!" would Axl have done it? shit's crazy.

Nah. Axl spent 14,000,000$+ on this album. The result is a concept album with no hit single. I always thought that CD will sound somehow like George Michaels 'Freeeek'. Just with electric guitars. 

GnR fans outside the US were definately not ready for CD. And the music producers for CD were also like 'WTF? Sorry, its not good enough. You can do better, Axl'. Compared to AFD and UYI, CD is crap. 

As a concept album its fine and has alot of interesting ideas for musicians. It should have been released as a solo record. an Axl Rose triple debute album. 

when they didnt release NR and Don't Cry on AFD the argumentation was plausible. Both were big guns and didnt fit on AFD. On CD we have balads like Street of Dreams and stuff like Shacklers. The whole album breaks every rule Axl set before. He wanted a NIN type Album. And the fact is, it doesn't sound like NIN at all...He wanted to work with Brian May. He did and edited him out.

The whole album is like: So what was your fucking point?
